Conflict Free Diamonds

At Ember, we pride ourselves on maintaining the highest ethical standards when it comes to sourcing diamonds. We understand the importance of ensuring that the diamonds we purchase are conflict-free and responsibly sourced. That's why we exclusively procure diamonds through the most respected suppliers who adhere to the strict guidelines established by the Kimberley Process. The Kimberley Process is an international certification scheme that was created to prevent the trade of diamonds from financing armed conflict and human rights abuses. It sets forth a series of requirements and procedures that must be followed by diamond-producing countries, diamond traders, and diamond industry organizations. Our collection of diamonds is sourced from various locations across the globe, including renowned mines in Australia, Africa, and Canada.

Responsibly Sourced Stones

At Ember, ethical sourcing is a cornerstone of our commitment, extending beyond diamonds to all genuine stones. We exclusively partner with reputable suppliers adhering to stringent ethical practices. Just as the Kimberley Process safeguards diamonds, we ensure that our diverse gemstone collection is responsibly sourced, free from conflict, human rights abuses, and unethical practices. Ember stands firm in delivering not just exquisite gemstones but also peace of mind to customers who prioritize ethical and responsible consumption.

Recycled Gold

We exclusively use recycled 14K gold in all our jewelry. By choosing recycled gold, we contribute to minimizing environmental impact and reducing the demand for new mining.

CERTIFICATIONS AND AUDITS

Our jewelers are certified members of the Responsible Jewelry Council (RJC), an internationally recognized organization dedicated to promoting responsible and ethical practices throughout the jewelry supply chain. Our jewelry facility has successfully met the stringent requirements set by the RJC, demonstrating our commitment to ethical sourcing, responsible business practices, and environmental stewardship.
